Celebrate the hottest entrepreneurial technology companies that have exhibited that special something that makes them "Hot Tickets" - great vision, the ability to implement and deliver, an innovative management approach or star-quality charisma. The annual NVTC Hot Ticket Awards will be held June 26 at the home of NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg.

Meet the companies that had the Hottest Buzz, the Hottest Venture Capital Deal, and the Hottest Exit in the last year.
